An Overview: Florida Estate Administer and Personal Representative
What you need to know
Florida Estate Administrators, what we call Personal Representatives, manage the estate, or what you might refer to as handling the Florida probate. They will typically file the Will with the Court within so many days of death. They will file a petition for administration and begin the probate process by which they can gather all the decedent’s assets, find out who the beneficiaries are, find out who the creditors are, pay off all the creditors, pay the last credit card bill, pay the last Federal Income Tax, inform everybody who needs to know about the estate administration, pay all the bills, wrap everything up, and then give the beneficiaries a whole bunch of money.
